In recent years, utilities have risen in the ranks of common targets for cybercriminals. On Wednesday, December 7th, @Cisco_IoT and @CiscoUtilities hosted Utilities Security Imperative: More Real Than Ever, a #CiscoChat focused on cybersecurity for utilities companies. During this lively #CiscoChat, we were joined by Patrick Miller, Edna Conway, Marc Blackmer, Eric Ehlers, Jon Stanford, and John Reno. We dove into a discussion on the most pressing cyber threats facing the utilities industry today, how security teams can combat attacks, and what companies can do to better protect precious data and fortify themselves against a breach.

For those of you who missed this fantastic discussion, not to worry! Highlights from the chat are collected below:

Question: How can utilities address industrial cybersecurity challenges?

Question: How can utilities plan against attacks and vulnerabilities?

Question: Aside from technology, what else should utilities companies be doing to manage risk?

Thanks to all of you who participated in the chat! We look forward to seeing you next time.

To learn how we can help you strengthen your security:
